Tips for a Non-Tipsy Party

  • Stay sober. The only way you can act responsibly is to preserve your own judgment.

  • Serve nonalcoholic beer and wine. Or, concoct a special nonalcoholic holiday punch or eggnog.

  • People busy eating won't drink as much. Avoid salty foods, which make people thirsty.

  • Stop serving alcohol an hour before the party ends to give guests time to sober up.

  • Do whatever is necessary to keep guests from driving drunk. Take away their keys. Make cab service available. Offer them a couch on which to sleep.
